Melinda's Extra Hot Sauce

Melinda's Extra Hot Sauce

Here we are again my chilli heads after making a recovery after my last review. And today I’m trying Melinda’s Original Habanero Pepper Sauce, EXTRA HOT SAUCE. I’ll be honest, this would not generally be my first choice of product to choose judging by the label. Floral design with Melinda (No idea who she actually is though) staring at you in a rather calming appearance. Does not really fit the image of a EXTRA HOT SAUCE but you never know until you try the sauce and the whole package comes together. Other than that the bottle is quite tidy in the way that the white background and top blend extremely well with this peachy coloured sauce.

Ingredients: Choice Red Habanero Peppers, Fresh Carrots, Onions, Lime Juice, Vinegar, Garlic, and Salt.

Bottle kindly provided by www.hot-headz.com

Getting the vibe of a possible sweet sauce here so lets crack this open. Immediately I am greeted by a familiar Habanero and vinegar aroma. Lovely fresh pepper smell that is mild but stronger enough to remind you there is some good quality peppers in here. Lets have a taste.

The sauce has a slight pulpy texture to it and eventually comes out of the bottle. Very soft texture with a subtle hint of sweetness from the lime and a whole load of flavour from the Habanero’s. Not what I would call an extra hot sauce but it definitely has a nice warmth to it. No carrot flavour from this sauce as its all really about the Habanero. I would recommend this for the chilli head that is looking for a sauce that would cover most foods. From use as a dipping sauce all the way to being used as marinating meat. I’m actually thinking about making a cheese sarnie right now and putting a load of this in it, yummmmm. Very versatile sauce with plenty of flavour. One to be enjoyed by all.

Sauce kindly provided by www.hot-headz.com for the usual peanuts that you are charged. Only £3.99 a bottle, you can’t go wrong so get your orders in. Make sure you put on your order that you read this review and I’ll promise to send you nothing in return haha

Until next time guys, if it burns going in, it will burn coming out.

Melinda's Hot Habanero pepper Sauce

Melinda's Hot Habanero pepper Sauce

From Melinda’s comes the Original Habanero Pepper Sauce, one of around twenty different varieties. The sauce itself is created by a Costa Rican producer and imported by the Figueroa Brothers from Texas, eventually making its way to the UK via Hot Headz.

All the Melinda bottles are similar in design with the same pouting face of a woman, (presumably Melinda herself, who definitely hasn’t eaten a bunch of Naga Jolokias), with just the clear bold text and background colour changing across the range. Be sure then, if you have a stack of these, that you pick the correct one out on the right occasion. Other than the usual nutritional information, there’s not much else there and definitely no wild claims about being the world’s hottest sauce, only wholesome natural ingredients.

Ingredients: Fresh Carrots, Choice Red Habanero Peppers, Onions, Lime Juice, Vinegar, Garlic and Salt.

Bottle kindly provided by www.hot-headz.com

Once the bottle is open, the escaping aroma is quite acrid. There’s a distinct, robust vinegar nose, but don’t let that put you off too much because the flavours of the sauce are not overwhelmed by this component. There’s also a hint of garlic that creeps into the nasal cavity, but the habanero chillies are adept at hiding away their presence.

The sauce pours easily on the spoon, with small flecks of the chillies visible in the orangey mixture. The acerbic aroma is less intimidating on the tongue as it lingers on the taste buds, while the more fruity tones and heat of the habaneros puncture through the vinegar, leaving a pleasing flavour in the mouth, tempting the taster to sample another spoonful with its more seductive qualities.

Melinda’s Habanero is a pleasant sauce that will be particularly good with more starchy foods such as rice and chips, something that can help cut through the more bitter parts of the sauce. It comes in the standard 148ml bottle at a healthy £3.99 so it matches its rivals in cost, while providing a middling heat and lively overall flavour and experience. I shall definitely be checking out some others in the Melinda’s range.

Hoax - The Purple NagaWe had a bit of fun this month with recports on Twitter that a new Chilli had been tested in Mumbai India at 1,581,800 SHU, the new chilli was called the Purple Naga. Unfortunalty this turned out to be a hoax, the picture of the chilli turned out to be photoshop’d from an older image.. The purple colour did seem a little unreal.

1st May – We are now 2 years old

To celebrate we are giving away 8 bottles of limited edition “Darth Naga’s Unnatural Acts – Batch 31
